Power Up Your Feminine

If 2008 was the Year of the Woman, we’ve progressed to the Millennium of the Woman. Not only are women gaining clout in the traditional workplace, they have created their own workplace and leadership roles out of nothing more than audacity and their unique and powerful gifts and talents. Women aren’t following the patriarchal business […]

“Mom-conomy” Takes Over the World

Woe is me! What’s a mother to do in this world? With all of the economic disparity, the craptastic economy and the completely un-mom-friendly corporate culture that keeps us from our littles?

Keep Calm and Mother On

Breaking Up With Feminism?

I’ve long said that blogging and the Internet makes freedom of speech a reality for women. Women may have had the “right to speak” before, but who would hear them? I’ve also identified as a feminist since my teenage years. Still, I’ve been disenchanted, shall we say. And while I’m going to a panel soon […]

I Have Awareness Fatigue

I don’t care. I don’t care about a lot of things that a lot of good people believe that, if I were a good person with a soul, I should care about. They care about it, so it appears to follow that everyone needs to care about it. Or the world will end. Or there will be injustice. […]

Sovereign Nation of One

As I embarked on a personalized week-long retreat with SpiritQuest, a spiritual retreat company, in Sedona, I take a deep breath and realize a very important thing. I am sovereign. Standing at a crossroads in my life I find myself in a uniquely liberating position. Sovereignty. I divorced last year, making me single after a […]
